Chapter 3 The Danger of a Single Story (Speech)


Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, (born September 15, 1977, Enugu, Nigeria), a Nigerian writer whose work focused on the Biafran war in Nigeria in the late 1960's. 
At a young age, Adichie, the fifth of six children, moved with his parents to Nsukka, Nigeria. A diligent student from an early age, he discovered Things Fall Apart by novelist and co-founder Igbo Chinua Achebe. After studying medicine for a while in Nsukka, in 1997 he moved to the United States, where he studied communications and political science at Eastern Connecticut State University (B.A., 2001). Dividing his time between Nigeria and the United States, he obtained a master's degree in writing writing from Johns Hopkins University and studied African history at Yale University.

Summary of The Danger of a Single Story

Nigerian author and speaker Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie introduces herself as a storyteller who wants to share a few personal anecdotes on "The Danger of a Single Story," as she calls it. She was raised in a Nigerian household of middle class. Her father was a professor, while her mother was an administrator. When she was four years old, she started reading books, and at seven, she started writing stories and drawing pictures in crayon. She read mostly children's books from the United States and the United Kingdom, which left her with a single mental storehouse about books. She held the opinion that books ought to by their very nature feature foreign characters and cover subjects the author is not familiar with. a private connection She realised her mistake, though, after having the chance to read works by African authors like Chinua Achebe and Camara Laye. After reading African-American books, she realised that women with kinky hair and chocolate-colored skin might be characters in literature. She only had one story to share about their houseboy, Fide.
She had heard a lot from her mother about how poor Fide's family was. She believed that he and his family were doomed to be poor and that they lacked any other skills. When she visited his home, she found beautifully crafted, colourful raffia baskets that his brother had fashioned. She then understood that she had been lying to herself about Fide and his family. When Adichie's debut novel was released, she was 19 years old. She relocated there so she could complete her studies at an American university. Only one African storey was known to her American companion. She believed that all Africans were tribal, illiterate people living in a beautiful environment. Adichie's roommate was astounded by her flawless English because she was unaware that English was Nigeria's official language. Adichie's American professor also had one African story to share. Adichie's characters, according to one critic, weren't really Afi-can. Each and every novel written by an Afi-ican author should feature characters who are hungry and illiterate; they should not be well-educated or wealthy enough to drive. Adichie experienced some difficult times in her life, despite growing up in a loving, close-knit family. Her grandfathers passed away in refugee camps.
Her cousin Polle passed away as a result of inadequate medical care. Her closest friend, Okoloma, perished in a plane accident. Finally, Adichie claims that while stereotypes are not untrue, they are incomplete when they come from a single story. They change one story into just one.
